Hello everyone!! I have a concern that's been bugging me for the last few days. I live in an apartment complex and I have two tanks. One 55 gallon and one 70 gallon. My stocking situation is the pits. Each tank is over stocked by at least three fish. I really want to hang myself over it because I expected my dad and uncle who each have decent sized tanks to get their tools together so these fish can be rehomed. My issue is that each apartment in the complex is allotted a 'limit' or and expected amount of water consumption per month and I know that I exceed that. I haven't gotten a letter from management about it yet but I'm sure it's coming. I usually try to do a 60% water change on each tank every week and I once thought about increasing that amount since they seem more happy when I do that. It's killing me to even consider doing a 90% change every month. Since I started doing more frequent water changes I have not lost a fish, I really don't want to either. I'm sure that the fish that are going to new homes will be gone within the next two months or sooner but I am still stressed (really stressed) about doing huge water changes once a month. I do intend to talk to management about it but I already know what she's going to say. Hopefully I would have to pay for the amount of water that I use in excess but I'm not sure. Any suggestions in case I have to limit it?
